Batavia opposes SAFE Act

On Monday, the Batavia City Council passed a resolution opposing the state SAFE Act.  The resolution cited its duty to uphold the U.S. Constitution and said that the required documentation of ammunition sales as “a significant unfunded mandate on business.

In related SAFE Act news, advocates seeking the law’s repeal rallied at the Capitol the next day saying it is unconstitutional.

 

Thousands rally at Capitol for repeal of New York’s new gun control law

Although The Business Council has not taken a position on New York’s new gun control law, we thought you would be interested in hearing that nearly 10,000 people rallied at the Capitol today, one of the largest gatherings we have seen here. The pro-gun crowd called on Governor Cuomo to repeal the state’s new gun laws passed by the legislature in January. They ban the sale of most semi-automatic weapons and limit magazines to to seven bullets. It’s not certain if any gun manufacturers make seven round magazines.
